Flags help you remind yourself or another team member about an issue in a visual test or result. Flagging an issue adds either a Flag icon or Assigned Flag icon depending on the type of flag you insert.
Flags contain the following information:
The name of the user who created or modified the flag.
The date of when the flag was created or modified.
A description of the flag (optional).
The name of the user to whom the flag is assigned (optional).
The project in which the visual test or result is saved (optional).
The Flag icon appears in the Flags column of the Test Steps pane. When you move your pointer over the flag, a ToolTip displays the contents of the flag.
Insert flags using either of the following methods:
Select a step in the Test Steps pane of either a visual test or result and insert a flag.
Optionally, you can create a description for the flag and assign it to another user. Assigned flags appear in the selected step of the visual test or result and in the Flags pane of the Start Screen of the user to which the flag is assigned. From the Start Screen, you can quickly view all flags assigned to you and open the visual test or result that the flag appears in by double-clicking the flag.
Create verification logic in a visual test that failure during playback sends a flag to the result of the visual test.
In the result, the flag is inserted in the step containing the verification logic. This step appears in the Test Steps pane of the Failed tab, Flags tab, and Details tab of the result. Optionally, you can create a description for the flag in the wizard. By default, this flag is automatically assigned to the current user. If you want to assign it to someone else, you must reassign it after playback from the result.
